Excellence in Discipleship: Mathetes Award 

The Mathetes AwardWell, what a nice surprise -- Steve of Who with the Autumn night gave me the Mathetes Award a few days ago:

"Mathetes is the Greek word for disciple, and the role of the disciple (per the Great Commission) it to make more disciples. I'd like to take the opportunity to award five other bloggers with this award and badge for acting in the role of a disciple of Christ. These five all share the message in their own creative ways, and I admire them all for what they do."

Winnership rules: Winners must pick five other 'disciples' to pass it on to, so here are my five picks in alphabetical order:
  1. Causa Nostrae Laetitiae. I appreciate the effort Leticia Velasquez puts into sharing timely news stories and resources. I always learn something when I read her posts. You rock, Leticia!
  2. Domine, da mihi hanc aquam! Philip N. Powell, OP is a shining example of Dominican Splendiferousness. Thanks for taking the time to share your solid homilies and insightful comments with us, Father!
  3. Holy Cards for your Inspiration. I know I previously mentioned this blog as part of Blog Day 2007, but it deserves mention again here, because you can't help but be inspired by the beautiful pictures and reflections Micki shares.
  4. Me monk. Me meander. Fr. Stephanos, OSB is funny, informative, witty, and pulls no punches. Oh, and he's good with graphics.
  5. Young Fogeys. Right there, ya gotta love a blog with a title like that. And Fr. Jay Toborowsky's postings run the gamut from serious to silly; always a good read.
Thanks, Steve! :-)

Thank you, thank you, thank you. It is always a gift to be chosen as a site worthy of mention. As you know I'm keeping my blog just holy cards and a "few" words of inspiration so I won't be acknowledging this treasured reward. Thank you and keep up your excellent posts...I do enjoy reading them.
